Mint 16 cinnamon --replace

Post by warp »

Htop shows 4 instances of "cinnamon --replace".
Replace what? Gnome3? And is this normal?
I have no idea.

How did you installed Mint 16? As an (system) upgrade or as a new/clean/fresh install? Can you provide us with a screenshot of htop showing all info.

It was a fresh and only install of Mint 16 Cinnamon 64bit on a HP 6720s laptop.
1GB RAM - nothing opened: 681MB free - swap 1013MB Free 1013 MB

Opening stuff(e.g. firefox, EOG, Gimp) will at some point trigger an enormous amount of disk i/o (iowait: 94% with swappiness=10) and a high CPU usage (100%). The system becomes barely usable or apps fall into a loop.
